As it has became a kind of a tradition of the Ypsilon Institute, we were off to the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, to the city of Opuzen by the Delta of Neretva river.
It has been our base city and from there we drove to the nearby Kite-boarding surf spot, managed by Kaikala Kite-surf school. Other than kite-surfing, relaxing, enjoying the trully local food and meeting genuinely good hearted local people, there is not much to do here.

Five years ago nobody even knew about this breathtaking place, it was just a beautiful area to drive-by from Split to Dubrovnik. And we can only thank Ivica Odak, Domen Simčič and Soni Makarovič from Kaikala Kite-surf school for discovering a perfect kite-surfing playground…

“We’ve been down since 6:30am assessing the conditions,” Simpson said. “Wilko (Matt Wilkinson) and I have been having fun all day as he was here too – we’re friends out of the water, but we were just trying to catch the best waves we can. I had a really good opportunity solidify my lead out there more, but was unable to.”

After the duck dive session on Thursday, there was a change on the horizon. Kaja was leaving home, as her month long surf trip has ended. We said good-bye on the beach, surfers style like. I only know this girl for a week or so, but really was pleasantly relaxing spending time with her, meeting in Peniche. And as she left the kind of feeling of meeting again soon some random place again when she left. Cool stuff 😉
